I’ve gotten up 3 times tonight. I have no idea what the FUCK I am going to do when this new baby arrives. Julie has GOT to start sleeping through the night. I hate to say it but at 330am when she got up this time I stuffed Rachel into my bed (the girls share a room and Rachel got woken up)… and I closed the door and let Julie scream for 10 minutes and then fell back to sleep. I just can’t take the constant night wakings anymore, and my feelings are only amplified because I am doing it alone this week. I have GOT to get her to sleep through the night. CIO is looking really good right now but I know it won’t work on her. I tried it once last week out of sheer desparation and she ended up acting like a rabid, caged animal. I couldn’t calm her down for 10 minutes (literally). I know she is only 13 months but I just need to get some sleep on a regular basis. I totally understand waking up, we all do it, but to require attention 2, 3 times a night and yet another bottle….. I am at my wits end. Great little girl, but there has to be a way without me losing my sanity and her having to CIO. Maybe I was less tolerant earlier on and that is what got Rachel to sleep through the night at an earlier age, maybe it was breastfeeding that ruined her sleeping habits. I’ll grasp at any straw right now to find an answer, and a solution.
